Trees were produced by condensing the full phylogeny shown in Technical Appendix 2 Figure 1, panels A, B, and D. Human rhinovirus C′ (HRV-C′) includes the divergent rhinoviruses described in 2007 (13) and a related clinical strain (CL-Fnp5). HRV-C includes the new clade described since 2006 (9–14,16).

Enterovirus 104 (EV-104) and the related strain CL-1231094 refer to a previously unknown enterovirus clade described in this study. In panel C, HRV-C′ is shown in brackets to indicate its expected location (based on VP1 and 3D sequences). Simian picornavirus 1 (SV2) was used as an outgroup. HEV, human enterovirus. Bootstrap support values <50 are not shown in the trees. New viruses are shown in boldface.
